    I was wondering if anyone in East Central Illinois is on here with a tw200.



    The closest I have seen is 50 miles from where I live. No one around here has seen one except mine.



    Just Curious.

    Well this about confirms my thoughts. I have never seen a tw in this part of the state, some of the dealer's salesmen didn't even know what it was. I guess that is why the closest I have seen is 50 miles.



    Seems to be a lot of the full fledged off road bikes though.



    I might me unique to this area with a tw.

    I know I'm unique and I'm on the west side of indiana, right on the wabash, across from lawrenceville.. I haven't seen another here since my father bought the bike like back in 87. I'm sure your further north than me, but when I get my bike running again, and if your ever in the area. We could definately hook up and have some fun.

    I am straight west of Lafayette, in. And that is the closest I have seen one to me, and that is 50 miles. I live 8 miles into Illinois.



    I see them all the time in the SW Arizona.

    Don't I remember someone from St. Joseph (just E of Champaign if I recall correctly). Mine lives in DeWitt County for periods of 2-3 weeks about once a year. There was one in the New Salem area, but I think its gone now. Tom

    I'm in Quartzsite Arizona now haven't seen a TW here for almost a month.

    I ride mine almost every day, today to the post office and the hardware store.

    I am probably the closest to you. I am in Lafayette. I had a younger guy come in to work and tell me he was trying to get a TW that was a family members running. It was a 87 or 88 but only had 450 miles on it. He was having carb issues. I had a tricked out Harley that I sold last year and was in a few bike shows and the little TW get a lot more questions and remarks than the Harley ever got. Jim

    I came real close to getting my first TW in Lafayette. As I was driving up to look at one, I met one and thought this is not good.

    i was right a guy was test riding it, and he bought it.

    That was 4 or 5 years ago.

    I road to John Deere store, and two of the parts guys asked what I was on. 4 of the guys that work there had their bikes all parked in a row.

    That was the first time I had been there this year.
